I would have a freaking heart attack if I fell down what seemed to be a bottomless pit. If Ulrich and Odd didn't have a 'What have I gotten myself into?' moment before, they probably did now, just before thinking 'I'M GONNA DIE, AND IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!'

Okay, I think I figured out what I got wrong. All the stuff I said before are druid CLASS ABILITIES instead of FEATS. Apparently, there is a difference between these two categories.

Odd's still going to keep his multiclass at Lv 1, but not as a gestalt. The GM allowed this under the following conditions: he could only keep the CLASS ABILITIES of one (druid) and have only the bare bones of the other (gunslinger), which is shooting. He can't take any FEATS that improves his aim, except maybe weapon focus (not right away). Still debating on his laser arrows being natural weapons, considering natural weapons are for melee, not ranged. Not to mention Jeremie has to reload him whenever he runs out.

More research is needed for class balancing, but at least I now know what I was misunderstanding. Thank you, ChaosStar0, for helping me out.

If it were the other way around, Odd would only have a slightly higher nature sense than the PCs but be a fantastic shooter.

Life Points
Odd: 10 HP
Ulrich: 20 HP

Transcript

Andy: Yes! Made it!
Taylor: Barely.
Eric: I guess I follow Andy then.
Andy: No, wait!
Taylor: Too late. Ulrich followed you and is now falling.
Eric: Uh, I grab Andy!
Andy: My character’s not strong enough to pull us both up!
Taylor: And you can’t dig your claws in. The platform is metal. Well, virtual metal, but you get the picture.
Taylor: Andy, roll to keep your grip.
<ROLL>
Taylor: Not enough. You fall.
Eric: Are WE dead?

Even if they died, there is already a few more characters already in the story they can take over... i think...

You're welcome. Still reffering to Odd's class combination as a multiclass is still wrong. Multiclass characters take a Level of a class at Character Level 1 and then another class at Character Level 2, then one of the previous classes or a new class at Character Level 3, and so on and so on.

Character Level is the level of all of your classes put together. Class Level is the level of each individual class which is tracked seperately.

Sorry about bringing this stuff up, it's just that I don't see a reason for him to be a Gunslinger. You don't need a specific class to be able to shoot, and not being able to take any Feats that help with ranged combat is a serious nerf to Odd since Ranged Combat isn't that great to begin with. He needs to be able to take Ranged Combat feats to stay relevant compared to melee fighters.

I chose gunslinger because I had never seen it before, felt that it fit him, and thought it would be fun to include. I'm sorry if you don't like this, but that's what I'm going to do.

That's not what I meant. It's not that I don't like this, I'm actually neutral about it, it's just that I didn't understand why. It still doesn't make sense to be, but it's your comic, your story.

Fair enough. I hope you enjoy the story regardless. :)
